A Christmas Comet. For Sydneysiders, Christmas morning was perfect with Santa delivering the best present of all – clear skies! Comet Lovejoy was easy to see in the pre-dawn skies with the tail stretching upwards beside the Milky Way and the Southern Cross. It certainly brought joy to about 15 or so astronomers and photographers at Stanwell Tops.
